ATLANTA – Atlanta City Counci lmember Cleta Winslow, Adair Park Today, and EpiCity Realty are sponsoring the Tour de SWAT Bike Ride on Saturday, May 3 at 10:00 a.m. The public is invited to re-discover southwest Atlanta. The bike ride promotes the area’s history, its homes, and neighborhoods.
The self-guided 13-mile tour starts at Adair Park II (bounded by Murphy Avenue, Gillette Avenue, Lillian Avenue and Tift Street SW). The ride will go through the historic neighborhoods of Adair Park, Pittsburgh, Capitol View Manor, Capitol View, Oakland City, Westview, the West End, and conclude back at Adair Park II. These neighborhoods were established between 1835 and 1925.
“This bike ride encourages healthier lifestyles and stronger neighborhoods so that we are able to thrive in this wonderful city,” said Winslow. “If we take advantage of the good things we have available in our own backyard, we can make positive changes in the community.”
There will be limited registration on-site before the tour. Children 12 and under are free with a paid adult – all children must be accompanied by an adult. Bike rentals will be available through the Beltline Bike Shop 978, Murphy Avenue SW.
